Newell’s Loses an Ex-PresidentBy: Jeremy | August 10th, 2010
Last Saturday, Mario Garcia Eyrea passed away in Rosario. He is best known as the president who took a chance on one Marcelo Bielsa back in the day.
You know the story. Two titles and several years of success followed.
Honestly, he was before my time as fan, so I don’t know much about him. I believe he was the last president before the Rat Bastard took over, but don’t quote me on that.
Anyway, the man who hired el Loco deserves to be remembered as a good guy and his loyalty to the club will always stand out amongst the long list of club presidents.
Adios Don Mario.
